The Signs Express production centre in Gateshead is currently undergoing construction by expanding into the unit next door after outgrowing its current production unit.  It’s a positive sign for the economy and industry as a whole as well as the centres own individual trading area.  They are showing great signs for a successful future.

Established for over a decade, the franchise was taken over in 2005 by current owner Malcolm Lant and over the past year alone has experienced an exceptional 25% increase in turnover.  Due to the expansion and increased demand for their services they have employed another 2 staff with a combined 50 years experience in signs, proving they have the expertise and knowledge to help their customers create the right image and stand out from their competitors. 

The new print room due to open shortly will be filled with state of the art equipment such as a flat bed printer, wide format roll to roll printer and laminator. The extended part of the factory is to house recently purchased machinery such as a CNC router, box and pan folded and a Mig and Tig welder.

Commenting on the expansion, Malcolm Lant, owner of Signs Express says that “Since taking over the franchise in 2005 we have been able to grow the business considerably, and it seemed like perfect timing to expand into the unit next door which was empty.  We are very positive about our future here, we have now doubled in size and this enables us to take on more clients and gain more new business.  We are very excited about taking our business to the next level.”

The expansion will give the already successful centre the capacity to cater for larger projects in-house with a much quicker turnaround and therefore continue its natural progression as the leading sign maker in the area.
